If you are looking for a way to keep your teeth from moving after they have been straightened with braces, retainers are the best solution! River Harmony Dental is pleased to offer retainers to prevent the reversal following Orthodontic treatment.

What is a Retainer?

Retainer | River Harmony Dental | General & Family Dentist | Cochrane | Alberta

A retainer is a dental appliance that is used immediately following orthodontic treatment in order to protect the results of the orthodontic intervention. Simply put, a retainer ‘retains’ the treatment benefits and prevents teeth from shifting out of alignment. Retainers are custom made to fit each patient. Almost all orthodontics recommend you wear some form of retainer each night, indefinitely, after your braces have been removed.

How Long Do Retainers Last, and How long do you Have to Wear One?

Retainer | River Harmony Dental | General & Family Dentist | Cochrane | Alberta

The lifespan of a retainer depends on how well you take care of the retainer, as well as how well you take care of your mouth. Potentially, retainers can last for years if routinely cleaned and if you avoid damaging them. On average, removable retainers can last for about 5-10 years, while permanent retainers can last for decades. To maintain the straight smile your Orthodontic treatment helped you achieve, you will need to wear a retainer nightly for the rest of your life. However, it is important to note that after some time it will not be necessary to wear them as often.

River Harmony Dental is committed to helping you maintain your beautiful and straight smile following orthodontic treatment! If you are in need of a retainer, or you have any questions or concerns about retainers, please do not hesitate to contact us at (587) 493-0305 and we will be happy to help
